Why Pit Bulls?
This breed has unfortunately gotten a bad reputation as being vicious, when most are very kind and make great pets. Though they have a history of being bred for dog fighting, they are not inherently aggressive and many would rather snuggle on the couch. Pit Bulls also have some of the largest litters of any dog breed, some litters can have as many as 12 puppies! These factors have led to shelters being flooded with unwanted Pit Bulls needing a loving home.
What is a Pit Bull?
There is actually no specific breed that is a ‘Pit Bull’, rather it is a term used to describe multiple breeds with very similar characteristics. These bully breeds include the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Some people even consider Bull Terriers and American Bulldogs as bully breeds.
